In addition to a toll-free hotline, 1-855-MDDOGS1 (1-855-633-6471), HSUS has provided the following very useful links:

MVFA at Anne Arundel Animal Control - 5/12/12

Maryland Votes for Animals was at the Adopt-A-Thon at Anne Arundel County Animal Control on Saturday, May 12. 

We signed  up new members and talked to people about what they could do to promote a solution to the disastrous ruling on pit bulls by the Maryland Court of Appeals.  

Maryland Votes for Animals presented the staff of animal control with an award to recognize their efforts to place more homeless animals in new homes.  And Animal Control adopted out 18 cats and dogs during the event!

Heartfelt appreciation for everyone who rallied for Maryland's dogs!

Delegates Smigiel, Mizeur & Cardin
Thanks to everyone who showed up today on behalf of Maryland’s dogs at Lawyer’s Mall at the foot of the Capitol, including the terrific organizers of the event, Dara Crystal and Kat Homan-Soul.   It was an impressive crowd.  One of the legislators said it was a bigger turnout than for the anti-tax rally on Monday night!  And even the rain held off for us.
